Following the national lockdown announcement from President Cyril Ramaphosa, Aquila Private Game Reserve and Spa and Inverdoorn Private Game Reserve are closed for 21 days.
With the Big 5 and other wildlife on both reserves, the Anti-Poaching Teams continue their dedicated service, while the conservation teams ensure that the health and well-being of the animals are top priority.
Moments to celebrate
While South Africa fights the #COVID19 pandemic, the Aquila Collection had a few light moments of celebration during the first six days of the South African lockdown.
The Anti-Poaching Units at Aquila Private Game Reserve and Spa observed the birth of a baby hippo at the property.
Similarly, the conservation teams at Inverdoorn Private Game Reserve spotted a beautiful baby giraffe and new born buffalo.
The remote teams at Aquila had a surprise opportunity to celebrate the birth of a new human being. A dedicated member of the Anti-Poaching Unit tuned in digitally to witness the birth of his child while he was on duty out in the veld. Congratulations to the new parents!
The conservation teams have reported that all wildlife are thriving and in good health. The teams in lockdown on the properties are healthy and in good spirits.
While you can’t visit the reserves right now, you can follow Aquila and Inverdoorn on social media for updates.
